The Philadelphia Daily News reports that the Eagles are saying as of right now there is no deal in place for QB Kevin Kolb.
There is speculation among many people that the Eagles ignored a couple of key situations in the draft with a few other circumstances to create a comforting theory — they think the team already has a deal in place for QB Kevin Kolb, but just can’t make it official until the lockout is over. Head coach Andy Reid said Tuesday on Comcast SportsNet’s Daily News Live that the way he understood the pre-lockout offseason rules, “you weren’t supposed to finalize any deals and even get into that type of talk about deals.”
Contrary to what some fans think, the brief thaw in the lockout during the draft did not loosen restrictions on trade discussion. Reid said a number of teams indicated interest back before the league shut down, but “you don’t know how serious they are, because in the National Football League, nothing happens until it has to happen.” He said the early talks were very general, and there has been no opportunity to revisit them. “You have an idea of who’s interested in quarterbacks … but you couldn’t do any deals then. You never got to that point where it’s real serious; it was too far in advance,” Reid said. “And you can’t talk at all now. So, if he ends up going somewhere, more power to him, he deserves that opportunity. But I also like him here.”
